winter menus


I have started writing menus for cooks who are stuck in a unhappy routine or have new dietary restrictions they are unfamiliar or overwhelmed by.  It has been alot of fun and rather inspiring.  I have pulled out those cookbooks collecting dust on the bottom shelf, some I have yet to browse, and found recipes to add to my ever-growing list of “new recipes to try”.  And I feel like I have helped out some folks, maybe re-inspired them, and hopefully, kept one more family out of the McDonald’s drive thru.  Small victories are what keep us going, well at least me.

I think I will start a new monthly post, seasonal sample menus.  It can give seasoned cooks new ideas, and aspiring cooks incentive to want to cook.  These menus are so easy, with a little know-how, they can be made without an actual recipe.  For those who need the recipe, you can hire me! 🙂

Cheers and happy cooking!
